What is clearly happening here is Syria is asking Israel for another beating. 1948, 1967, and 1973 were clearly not enough for these people. They talk of the region going to war as if Egypt and Jordan hadn't already learned their lessons and signed peace accords. Israels message to Damascus should be clear. Cut the foolishness, rhetoric, and stupid policies regarding the Golan Heights. You lost your right to that land the second you put cannons on it. Peace is the way of the future. Peace can also be achieved by beating one's opponent into sumission. With Syria, that is easy.
